Our friend, Jeannie, came to visit. We decided Moorten Botanical Garden should be at the top of our things-to-do list in Palm Springs, since she is an amazing gardener (more on her garden here). On Wednesday afternoon, we walked over to the Garden and saw the sign on the gate: “CLOSED on Wednesday.” Nooooooo!
Jeannie had to leave before she could visit Moorten, but we were intrigued by what lay behind that gate so returned on our own a few days later.
The rustic sign outside and the small size of the property might have misled us to think that this might be a waste of time and money. (There’s a $4 entry fee). Fortunately, we had read reviews before we went and those encouraged us to pay a visit. The garden was splendid, and we spent a couple hours there enjoying everything we saw. The only caution we would offer: Please don’t touch the plants.
